Yesterday, Oct. 14, BMW has unveiled the long-anticipated F30 3 Series model. The new model, which appears at dealerships in February, is critically important for BMW – it is a bestseller, or at least the old one was.
It’s the sixth edition of a vehicle that first went on sale in 1975 and has sold 12 million copies.
Besides the headlights that sneak into the grille area, the new Three resembles a downscaled 5 Series in most respects and designers have surely struck a decent balance that will keep most customers from crying foul.
The new version is 93 millimeters, or 3 1/2 inches, longer, but up to 40 kilograms (88 pounds) lighter, and has more legroom for the rear seat passengers.
Let’s take a look at the differences – but in a different way. Inautonews presents you a photo comparison between the new BMW 3 series and the old model.
